Advanced Microsoft Word Features Disabled After Installing MathType
The information in this document applies to:
MathType 6.x (Windows)
Microsoft Word 2002 and later (Windows)
Some advanced features in Microsoft Word, such as Paste Smart Tags in Word
2002 and printing multiple sheets to a page in Word 2002, are unavailable when MathType's Commands are
MathType's VBA-based macros load automatically in Word in order to give our
users access to more advanced and automated MathType functionality. In order for
this advanced functionality to work properly, MathType's macros intercept some
of Word's built-in commands, such as Edit>Paste, so that MathType is able to
perform its own operations.
In general, this method of integration into Microsoft Word does not cause any
problems, but in some cases this process of intercepting Word's commands affects
Word's normal behavior. We have reported these issues to Microsoft in the hopes
of providing our customers with MathType's full functionality without
sacrificing any Word features.
